Plan Early and Think Diverse

Did we all experience challenges in the past growing season? Sure. But, we experience challenges every season. Conditions are always changing and forcing us to improve and evaluate our methods. The only way to get ahead of these challenges is to plan early and think diverse. Now, let me tell you what I mean by that.

When it comes to planning early, you might think “I can’t plan too far in advance, because I don’t know what the weather will be like.” But – there is a way around that. With the Advantage Acre® Timeline, you can see weather patterns and predictions up to 11 months in advance with 84% accuracy. While it may not show the exact rain fall and temperature by day, even seeing a weekly average gives us the ability to know if it will be a wet year or a dry year, a hot year or a cool year and more. Information like that is invaluable when it comes to hybrid selection.

Now, let’s talk about thinking diverse. Your farm deserves more than a one-size-fits-all product. You deserve targeted hybrid placement based on soil type, weather predications, yield capability and more. With Advantage Acre’s seed plan feature, and the help of your STAR Partner dealer, you can make a field-by-field plan with a diverse hybrid mix that is positioned for success.

We’ve discussed planning early and thinking diverse, but let’s think about efficiency. Want to help save on input costs?  Advantage Acre’s nitrogen model allows you to have a better understanding of nitrogen availability in the field and should be applied based on your yield goal and Advantage Acre’s seeding model.  You can also utilize variable rate features to increase efficiency on your operation next year.

If you’re ready to get down to business with Advantage Acre, contact your local LG Seeds team to start planning early and thinking diverse today.
